Editor for this issue: Luiza Newlin Lukowicz <luizalinguistlist.org>


The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) on ten-month fellowships to

their skills, gain international experience, and learn other cultures. Upon

knowledge with their communities and professional colleagues.
